There are theories that say neutrinos—shy, lightweight fundamental particles—may provide the key to understanding dark matter. So a group of researchers—including some from the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC), a research center of the University of Wisconsin–Madison—compiled and contextualized two decades of neutrino data looking for a connection to dark matter. They present a comprehensive set of limits on dark matter annihilation to neutrino pairs in a paper available on the preprint server arXiv.

DM-Ice, or Dark Matter-Ice, is searching for dark matter in the Southern Hemisphere. In celebration of Dark Matter Day, celebrated internationally every year on October 31, we speak to Matt Kauer, an assistant researcher on DM-Ice who is stationed at WIPAC.

the COSINE Collaboration today presents the first results that significantly challenge DAMA’s claim of a dark matter observation. The paper, published this week in Nature, does not reveal any excess of interactions that could be attributed to dark matter.

Deep in the ice at the South Pole, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory sits and waits for high-energy particles to pass in its midst. However, another detector, DM-Ice, is situated among IceCube’s strings, partnering with its technology for a different purpose: the search for dark matter.

The 2014 annual meeting of the DM-Ice Collaboration, hosted today by WIPAC, brings together a dozen of its members to discuss current status and future development of the dark-matter detector at the South Pole.
Research at WIPAC At WIPAC, research focuses on particle astrophysics, which uses neutrinos, cosmic rays, and gamma rays to explore the extreme universe. Very powerful processes dominate the cosmos...
